Western Kenosha County Historical Society hosting holiday open house Dec. 1

This image is the Myers House, a one time Boyle ICe Company boarding house of Silver Lake. This is the southerly exposure with the Cogswell Road and Silver Lake to the right side. This was located approximately where the storage units are next to Harm Garwood's BP Gas and Silver Lake Service Station is today. In this image, an addition has been made to the left of the chimney on to what was originally the boarding house. Over the years, the building hosted several different businesses and names including Bachara;s Hotel (1950s). It has since been torn down - June, 1990. From this boarding house location, the Boyle Ice House was directly across Cogswell. Best guess on the date of this image is 1907. /Submitted photo used with permission
